Airport Drop off at Sunrise

The alarm rang at 4:15am and got up I did to take my youngest to the airport yesterday. She was leaving to spend the next eight weeks in hot, sunny Texas. I was sad to say goodbye again so soon after she returned from college. But, I was grateful for the pretty sunrise on the way back home. Just a few snaps with my cell phone.

Color Inside…Cold Outside

While our temperatures have remained in the 40’s with sun only one day 😦 in a week, my family brightened Mother’s Day with these several flowers that I’m still enjoying! We had friends over on Sunday as well, who spoiled me too with these lovely colors.

Oh yes, and my kids know how to reach their Mama’s heart….sponge candy!

Small Signs of Spring

This mornings air is 44-degrees crisp, the sky is gray and the smell of cold rain through my cracked kitchen window makes me want to bake an apple pie. It feels like a lovely October day (sigh). While I love autumn, we northeasterners are craving warmth. Having traveled to a few different states in the last four weeks, God forgive me but I’m quite envious of every state south of New York. Even our close neighbors in Pennsylvania have far more life growing from the ground and trees than we do.

While Spring is still struggling, some welcome greens and sprouting flowers give hope that warmth is on the way. Even those pesky dandelions are giving me reason to smile this May day.
